Andrew Blythe: Cartography of the Unknown - Art Collector

Andrew Blythe, 'Untitled', 2017, acrylic ink on paper, 83x59cm. Courtesy of the artist and Tim Melville Gallery.

Andrew Blythe’s Cartography of the Unknown exhibition takes its title from the Orlando Stewart documentary shown at the 2017 NZ International Film Festival. This 11-minute short film was an introduction to Blythe’s turbulent life and intense art practice. Its screenings sold out but it is now available to view on vimeo:

Andrew Blythe’s most recent exhibition includes a suite of ‘poured’ paintings in new colours, several graphic, linear and layered works using the artist’s trademark repeated ‘x’ and ‘no’ motifs, as well as a new series of works in crayon and graphite on paper.

“Pattern and rhythm play a big part in [Andrew’s] work, but pattern-breaking also happens - and sometimes a layering of other patterns occurs so that visual ‘accidents’ happen. If Andrew’s work could be transcribed as music it would sound like improvisational jazz with a strong jungle backbeat.” (Stuart Shepherd, 2012)
